memory - Kraft Plus April challenge

 Hello there!!  Today I'm sharing my page for the Kraft Plus challenge.  The theme is black and white as shown on this mood board.

 Here's my page:
 I took my inspiration from the picture frames and also the marble/water colour element.
Lately, I've been scrapping a few scenery pictures - sometimes it's good to remember a moment in time about a place you may have been.  I always love being at our local jetty!
Here are some close-up's:

 I've used a couple of square frames to imitate the picture frame element of the challenge.
And here in the background, I've done a bit of water colour with black ink.
The photo blends in well with the neutral colours of this page.

I love the simple look created with a touch of mixed media ☺
Thanks for coming by ♥

good times - Kaisercraft April challenge

 Hello there!  My first post for April☺
It's school holidays here at the moment and next week, we are off on a camping trip.  So there won't be too many crafty shares.
But I have joined in with the Kaisercraft challenge for this month - they have this fun sketch challenge:
KC april 16

 Here is the page I created:

 I can't seem to get away from using white as my base paper - I like the simple clean look it gives to my pages.
Here, I've used one of my favourite pics from our Summer road trip!  I've teamed it up with papers and embellishments from the Sandy Toes collection.
Here are some close-up's:

I'm really enjoying these Kaisercraft challenges each month and it's getting me digging into my pile of Kaisercraft products!

love you - March Kaisercraft challenge

KC march challengeHello there.  I'm popping up one more page for March - joining in with the challenge over at Kaisercraft.
They have a nice sketch challenge this month!

Here's what I've created:
 I've used the Kaleidoscope collection - papers and co-ordinating stickers.
I've printed out my photo in B + W because it's easier to match up with busy pattern papers.
Here are some close-up's:
 I've kept true to the sketch - I love how it has the clustered section in the middle and is balanced out by the strip at the bottom.
 The sticker sheet has lots of great words included so I've used a number of these on my page. 
 I'm off to link this page up at the blog - thanks so much for coming here ♥

happy together - Artastic March challenge

Hello there!  It seems this month is flying by .....  but I've managed another scrapbooking challenge.  This month Artastic have this fun piece of inspiration:

The requirement is to use wood veneer!

Here's what I've come up with:

 Inspired by the picture, I've included some woodgrain into my page.  I also found some cute owl images in my stash and have made them into flair buttons - four in totoal - for each lad ☺  I added in the strip of paper with the tree's for a pop of colour!
Here are some close-up's:

 I've used a die-cut for one word of my title and the other a wood veneer as part of the challenge requirement.
I love to use stamps on my pages and I happened to have a woodgrain background stamp - so this tied in nicely on the page.

Loved this challenge - there's lots of lovely inspiration on the blog at Artastic.
Thanks for popping in ☺

fun in the sun - D-lish Scraps March challenge

 Hello there and happy Monday.  I created this page over the weekend for the D-lish Scraps March challenge - I purchased one of their 'just add paper' kits called Sunny Daze.
I've used some of the kit for the challenge!

 Here's what I've come up with:
 I've used some recent photo's of my son at the beach - our Summer has just ended but we are still getting some gorgeous 'beachy' weather, so we are making the most of it ☺
I love all the different embellishments in the kit!
Here are some close-up's:

 A piece of orange tissue paper was included in the kit, so I used my scallop punch to create this puffy flower.  The crochet bunting is a cute addition to the kit ♥
I love the wood veneer title and it was perfect for my photo's.

Loved playing along with this mood board challenge - pop over to their blog to see all the details of how to join in ☺
Thanks for popping in.

Hello there, hope you've had a great week.  I'm sharing a page using some products from Flutterby Designs and also a stamp set from Kellie Stamps!
We've had a great Summer and it's nice to record those moments while they are still fresh ☺
 Once again, I've used the Project Life app to edit my photo and add some text.  I'm really loving the simplicity of doing it this way!
I've used photo cards from the Everyday Super Cool pack from Flutterby Designs.  The colours in this pack are great for Summer themed pages.
Here are some close-up's:
 The tickets are great embellishments also with the flair buttons!
 This is the 'Words of Wisdom' stencil and I've used it in two ways.
First, I've used a pen to stencil in some of the words on to my background paper.  Then I've gone over it with Heidi Swapp colour shine spray.  It's a nice layered effect.
For my title, I've used the 'stand tall alpha' from Kellie Stamps!
First, I've stamped my letters onto some watercolour paper using Memento Black. I've left enough room to be able to use a circle punch to cut out the letters.  Then I've sprayed over the letters with Heidi Swapp colour shine.  Once dry, I've cut out each letter with a 1" circle punch.
I've popped up each letter on foam dots to give some dimension!

super cool dude

 Hello there, I love getting goodies in the mail - it helps with the creativity!  I received an order from Flutterby Designs and whipped up this page yesterday. 

 I've been doing a bit of photo editing with the Project Life Becky Higgins App - I've made a 4x6 collage - photo, filler card and journal card - all in one.  It's printed up nicely and it's so quick and easy!
Here are some closeup's of the page:

 I purchased this word stencil - it has a great thickness to the stencil which gives nice texture to the page. 
 I've added in some water colour to the background as it suits the theme of the page.
Lots of great stuff to play around with including the flair badges. 

Check out the Flutterby Designs store - they have great designs!
